FIA 86 Standard suits can't be used in Internationals unless you're in a modified car......
From next year on, FIA 86 standard suits cant be worn in National Rallies either.....
I bought an FIA 86 suit in 1999 but it was early in the year......not sure how you'll be fixed yotommo, check the labels on the suit......
check the collar of the suit and you'll see the FIA spec embroidered onto it, the type 8856-2000 will be very noticable on it, not sure when the suit spec will change again but you should get a few years use out of one. Its really just a case of checking the "Green Book" every year and making sure your gear is within the spec.Originally posted by Ctdprep
while we are on the standards subject, i bought my sparco 3 layer suit last june. Brand new.. so when do I have to change it? is there a 'sell by date' like seats and harnesses ? is it the same with helmets? when do they run out ?
